Miller Electric Company recently expanded at its current location, 2501 St. Mary's Avenue, in Omaha, Nebraska. The two-story addition added 16,000 square feet to the 106-year-old company. MCL Construction was the general contractor for the project that took just over eight months to complete.
Visitors enter a spacious new lobby that features an accent wall paying tribute to Miller Electric's storied history that started in 1912.
It's easy to see that Miller Electric embraces the collaborative process. The new space features spacious conference rooms with the latest audio/visual technology to make meetings more interactive. There also is a large classroom and training area for employees to keep them up-to-date on the latest technologies and building practices.
The lower level of the addition features additional space for Miller Electric's field operations providing increased storage and an adjustable truck dock to load and unload material.
Ray Bruegman, President of Miller Electric, says the new addition has been extremely positive with employees. They are appreciative of the new look and it shows the company is here to stay.
